Overview

Clarice Bean Spells Trouble by Lauren Child

Clarice Bean is in for a spell of trouble -- and shares a lesson about kindness -- in this hilarious sequel to the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller.

Clarice Bean seems to be in nonstop trouble these days, almost as much as Karl Wrenbury, who is the naughtiest boy at school. If only she could be more like her favorite book character, Ruby Redfort, girl detective, who is very good at getting out of trouble. The problem is, Mrs. Wilberton is planning a spelling bee, and just thinking about it gives Clarice a stomachache. But when Karl Wrenbury has a family problem and gets into really big trouble, Clarice does something utterly unexpected, altruistically proving Ruby Redfort's maxim "Never let a good pal down." The superbly talented Lauren Child presents a fast-paced, full-length adventure full of wacky wit, visual appeal, and a surprisingly heartwarming twist sure to reel in the most reluctant reader.

About the Author

Lauren Child was absolutely utterly never in trouble when she was at school. Ever. And if she was, it was usually for a very good reason. And nearly always not her fault. The author-illustrator of the acclaimed UTTERLY ME, CLARICE BEAN, the first full-length fiction adventure starring Clarice Bean, Lauren Child has also created several picture books about this popular character. In addition, Lauren Child is the creator of a series of picture books about the lovable sibling pair Charlie and Lola, including I WILL NEVER NOT EVER EAT A TOMATO, which was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. Lauren Child lives and works in London.

I really enjoyed my daughter's pleasure with these books! She received the entire series, and was only disappointed with the end of the series. The illustrations were great and even though the lessons discussed were very well understood, she still found the series entertaining. When a child understands lessons at a very young age, it is difficult to find good reading material for them without getting them bored. This series was great. I would love to see another round of Clarice Bean!

Once again, Lauren Child takes us into the life of young Clarice Bean, and the antics she gets into are funnier and wilder than the last book. I loved every minute of reading this book and I'm hoping there's another one to follow.

Our 6 year old has read quite a few chapter books and loves Charlie & Lola. This was not at all what she was expecting.
